Recommended Posts

They are looking for a big enough tug boat as we speak,to tow the new federal district

some where close to the US coast.

Why, not they already speak the language(major point) .

History going backwards?

The rest of the world have been forming trade blocks. It makes sense as many countries together can get rid of tariffs within the block, which distorts trade, and have more power when discussing trade with other blocks.

We now have the EU, Mercosur, TPP, Pacific Alliance, NAFTA (or it's successor) and many others.

The time for single country trading has been over for a long time now. The UK is going backwards.

 

Whilst the EU has many, many faults, most notably politics, rules and regulations, this was made up for by the free movement of goods and labour.

 

Just remember what the US government's catch phrase is. "America First". The UK better have some Vaseline at hand. 

That's the problem. The EU is not just a trading block. I wish it was.

The trouble is any trade deal between the US and UK is very unlikely to be in the UK's interests.

The US will want access to the NHS which will be disastrous for healthcare in the UK.

UK would be forced to accept American food and I for one do not want low quality US food imports destroying UK farming.

Remember....America 1st is what it's all about and that would be guaranteed to apply to any US/UK trade deal too.

Bizarre post. Could you explain why any trade deal with the US would a) guarantee visa-free movement of people, and the right for Americans to avail themselves of our NHS? 

 That Trump has already clarified should be of help to you 

 

"the US president told ITV's Good Morning Britain: "I don't see it being on the table."

He added that the NHS was something he would "not consider part of trade".

 You may not have noticed, but the US is a huge market, and goods produced in the UK have a high reputation for quality plus a certain "coolness" factor across the pond. For ex certain whiskies and cheeses. Any trade deal will certainly be in the UK's interest. I would guess a mutual interest.

 Now please clarify your doomsday predictions...

Correct, it also has a court that frequently rules against and levies fines on the rapacious practices of US based corporations.

There is no suggestion of American’s ‘availing themselves of the NHS’, there is however evidence in statements made by the US Ambassador to the Court of St James and by Trump himself, that  the US will not offer the UK a trade deal unless the NHSis included in that deal.

 

Put simply the US will demand US pharmaceutical industry, health insurance industry and health services industries are given open access to the NHS.

 

ie the privatisation into US control of the NHS.

Debunked in this interview from 01 July (see between 6 & 9 mins).

Brexit's not in the U.S.'s geopolitical best interests. It's Russia who stands to benefit from a weakened European Union.

Thank you, evidence of the Ambassador and Trump attempting to walk back their statements in the face of a political pushback.
